5 Money Saving Hacks Every Shopaholic Should Know

At the start of this year I set myself a goal that I would save a significant amount of money by the end of this year. I am ashamed to say my savings account currently consists of 77p, which unless my goal was to treat myself to a Kitkat bar on a rainy day – it isn’t going to get me very far.

Fruity Flapjacks Recipe

5 Things I Learned From A Media Detox

Follow my blog with Bloglovin At the start of January I decided to take a plunge and give TV, Radio, Social Media and everything else related to the digital world a rest. Why? Simply because I found it difficult to concentrate, or even gather my thoughts and knew I needed some space. So, I made the decision to fast for 21 days without any media outlets at all.
